Daybreak has been deemed #5 in the U.S. for Top-Selling Master-Planned Communities of Mid-Year 2020! Year to date new home sales in Daybreak are up 40%! All this despite living through a pandemic. New home sales did have a small hit in March and April as stay-at-home orders we implemented. However as restrictions lifted there was a sudden surge of demand in home sales. 

Communities, like Daybreak, that are able to offer a variety of housing options and different price points continues to be key for growth in these master planned communities. Low inventory coupled with high demand keep builders and development busy expanding these areas.

According to USA Today, South Jordan is among the top 50 cities in America to live in.  A contributing factor in South Jordan achieving this status is the rapid growth of Daybreak, attracting 400+ new residents a year.   Once completed, Daybreak will nearly double the size of South Jordan, which currently has just over 69,000 residents.   Other factors include the 4.1% poverty rate and 3.0% unemployment rate.  What does this mean for those looking to buy or sell in the 84009? According to the Salt Lake Board of Realtors' third quarter statistics, South Jordan ranked number 9 out of 10 for most expensive zip codes along the Wasatch Front.  The average price for a home in South Jordan is $441,592, a hike of 8% compared to last year's third quarter stats.

FHA loan limits have increased! The FHA loan limits went from $304,500 to $312,800 in Salt Lake County. What dose this mean to buyers and sellers? If you buy in Salt Lake County with an FHA loan purchase price (typically putting down 3.5%) this makes your ​purchase power increase from last year approximately $8,000.

Something for Sellers to keep in mind: if you list your home for $325,000-$440,000 you are only making your home available to buyers that are able to put 5% down (this price range is above the 3.5% down FHA limit). However;  if you list at $325,000 you then add a plethora of buyers to your purchasing pool by including 5% down buyers AND 3.5% down buyers. This makes your home an option for many more buyers and your ability to sell that

What not to ask when selling your home: "What is my home worth?" or "What will my home appraise for?"  This is not the right way to understand the value of your home. An appraisal is an estimate of value or to put it more simply; one person's opinion of the value of your home. As we all know that opinion is not necessarily fact, it's important to know that there is no such thing as an absolute number that your home is worth

Here's what happened to one seller of mine. The buyer's appraisal of their home came in $70,000 below list price. Yikes! After hiring 3 different appraisers on the same house all 3 came back with very different "opinions" of value. After 2 weeks of convincing the banks, the buyers, and the REALTORS, I was able to sell the home for

I want to let you in on a secret. In the real estate market, we are seeing something that happened in 2005 that had a big impact on the housing market.

I recently found out about several companies outside of Utah that are buying a lot of homes in Utah. There is one company buying as many as 60 homes a month right now. Another company is planning on buying 30 a month. This is just 2 of the companies coming to Utah. These companies may have a huge impact on the Utah market.

What does that mean for the housing market in Utah? All of these homes being purchased are under $300,000. That means that suddenly 10% of home purchases will be investors. If you've looked at the market you've seen that supply is already limited. This new surge of investor
